Worry-free Summer Enrollment

At Hochstein, we understand that it’s difficult to plan ahead during these uncertain times.

One thing we DO know is that Summer is right around the corner! We want to let you know that you can easily plan for your summer of music or dance – or both – by taking advantage of our Worry-Free Enrollment plan.

What does that mean? Enrolling now under our Worry-Free Enrollment plan will mean that you can:

  • Ensure guaranteed placement in your favorite camps, classes, or lessons
  • Cancel your enrollment with no additional fees right up to two business days before the start of your camp, class, or workshop *
  • Transfer your enrollment by choosing online summer options or enrolling for Fall 2020

While we cannot predict the future – oh how we wish we could! – we can say that whatever the summer may bring, we will have options available to make your summertime an exciting one filled with music and dance.

* cancellation date for the first week will be Wednesday, July 2 because of the holiday weekend.
